let some punk ass little piece of [bleep] run his mouth and treat people like [bleep]. captioning by captionmax this is fox 5 news at 10:00. a maryland police officer on the wrong side of the law. tonight he faces attempted murder and sex charges.
10:01 pm
thanks for joining us everyone, i'm brian bolter. >> i'm shawn yancy. according to police the victim told them he tried to carjack him but it's all a lie. wisdom martin is working the story for us. >> officer gene gillette was indicted for murder and sexual assault among other thing. all this came to light after his story about shooting a jar jacking story at his house didn't add up. -- a carjacking story at his house didn't add up. >> reporter: the charges stemmed from a shooting at his home. officer gillette lured the victim to his home with a promise of being in a porn video, but when hall arrived there were no girls. they say the officer told hall to give him sexual favors and when he ran away, gillette shot him several times. officer gillette initially said it was an attempted carjacking. >> i was upset and frustrated.
10:02 pm
my brother-in-law, that's not his m.o. that's not what he does and for them to accuse him for something like that and then put him in that situation pretty much on his deathbed, you know, i was real frustrated. >> reporter: quintin pierce is john hall's brother-in-law. hall was in the hospital with serious gunshot wounds for about two weeks before recovering. during that hall explained the initial story about a carjacking was not true. >> we pretty much knew the outcome the way it came out was the way it was going to be because after john was able to speak he told us the story. the truth came out. >> it was because of the investigation. the investigators responded right away and they were able to do their investigation to determine what happened. >> it was a relief, too also because it takes the blame on my brother-in-law. >> reporter: gillette was with the mount rainier police department for three years and was officer of the year twice.
10:03 pm
his boss chief michael scott said he was excellent while he is everybodied with us and they are taken a back by the charges. >> god spared my brother-in-law for a reason and the truth came out. >> gillette's bond review hearing is tomorrow at 1:30. if convicted he could face up to life in prison. >> was there anything else in this officer's background that may have led to this? >> they're still digging, but no is the answer right now. his boss says he had a clean jacket and was a good officer. that's why they were so surprised when this information came out about this indictment against him today. >> wisdom martin, thank you. take a good look now at these surveillance photos. fairfax county police say this man is targeting women in northern virginia malls. he is suspected of slashing five women over the past five months. the most recent attack was yesterday afternoon at fair oaks mall. he cut a woman shopping at 21
10:04 pm
on her buttocks. similar attacks happened at tyson corner and the greenbrier center on route 50. if you recognize him, calm police. another big story, the debt ceiling debate, there is word of a major setback for house speaker john boehner's plan to raise not debt limit. the nonpartisan congressional budget office this evening reported the speaker's plan is short on its promised deficit savings, real short and the clock is ticking with the deadline just a week away. fox 5's tom fitzgerald back now from capitol hill and we're talking billions of dollars here. >> that's correct. the speakers office headed back to the drawing board tonight. the nonpartisan congressional budget office issued a report saying the speaker's plan would cut $150 billion less than promised. this development has thrown more confusion into a debate that's getting more complicated every day. facing pressure from conservative house republicans, speaker john boehner is still trying to lock down votes for
10:05 pm
his plan to raise the debt ceiling. >> we have a bill that is a reasonable approach negotiated with the senate leadership that really is common sense. there's more cuts in spending than you have in increase in the debt limit. >> reporter: the speaker's plan is to raise the debt ceiling by $1 trillion while cutting 1.2 trillion in spending, but it's a plan that's running into trouble. >> i want to be absolutely clear. i will not vote to increase the debt ceiling. >> reporter: conservative republicans like michele bachmann say they want deeper spending cuts while congressional budget office says boehner's plan overestimates its savings by $150 billion. >> speaker boehner's plan is not a compromise. it was written for the tea party, not the american people. democrats will not vote for it. >> reporter: senate democratic majority leader harry reid is pushing a competing $2.7
10:06 pm
trillion plan with the white house's backing. >> now is the time to compromise. it's for democrats to give, for republicans to give to reach a solution that's not ideal for anyone except for the country. >> reporter: but if both sides can't meet the august 2nd deadline, the administration will have to decide who gets paid and who does not. >> what there won't be money for is to pay all of our bills. >> reporter: allison frazier is a director of economic policy studies at the heritage foundation. >> on august 3rd we have a big crop of social security checks waiting to go out to recipients. so right off the bat the administration is going to have to be making some pretty tough choices. >> reporter: as the deadline nears house democratic leader nancy pelosi warns even if speaker boehner salvages his plan in the house, it could be a brief victory. >> does the speaker have any votes in his own caucus? >> i don't know, but i do know
10:07 pm
the bill is dead on arrival in the senate. >> reporter: the house was set to vote on speaker boehner's plan wednesday, but the report out tonight, the staff says they'll find more budget cuts to make up that gap and the vote could be pushed off till later in the week. >> major garrett from the national congressional journal joins us again tonight. you just heard nancy pelosi say this is dead on arrival in the senate. what are you hearing? >> look, the speaker is in a fix and this what is happens when you write legislation late, get a report from the cbo late and the results are not what you wanted to find. the reason the vote had to be delayed is the speaker can't before anything in his caucus that isn't scored by cbo. republicans won't vote tore anything blind. they want to see the numbers -- for anything blind. them the 2 see the numbers and the policy add up. -- they want to see the numbers and the policy add up.
10:08 pm
harry reid's policy hasn't been scored either. what boehner is saying all right, i came $150 million short, but at least i submitted my plan. give me time. we'll put something else together and vote probably thursday, but every day, every hour brings us closer to default that it's delayed. >> yesterday in the national journal you wrote about president obama not using a specific word in his speech to the american people. he didn't use the word veep toe, but in not past week i've -- veto, but in the past week i've heard him say he would veto a short term plan. >> speaker boehner's plan gives the president about six months of guaranteed debt limit extension and offers the prospect of another extension of the debt limit should congress and the super committee this bill would create in additional savings, a two-step process process. the president doesn't want a two-step process. the administration said told the president's advisors would recommend to him a veto. that gives the president wiggle
10:09 pm
room. i heard nancy pelosi, all the democrats are saying the bill can't pass the senate. let's wait until it passes the house because if it gets to the senate and harry reid's bill fails, there will only be one alternative, speak are boehner's, that may well fail -- speaker boehner's, that may well fail, also, but then the two have to put together something that resembles their bills, so compromise is still possible even though it takes a few steps. >> as we get down to the bottom line here, do you really think that we'll get to a point where they aren't going to work out a deal? i think a lot of people will say just like they passed the budget, it went down to the 11th hour. >> the budget worked out back in april and march because congress was new and the deadline wasn't as dire as this one. we're really coming up against
10:10 pm
it. every hour that passes the reality of default becomes greater. i'm not predicting default, but each and every hour wasted brings the country closer to default and the president, speaker boehner and harry reid, have to figure this out and figure it out quickly. >> we are still watching and waiting, major garrett, congressional correspondent for national journal, thanks for coming in again. >> my pleasure. following developing news from redskins park. now that the lockout is over the team and its players are back to work. fox 5 sports director dave feldman joins me now. what was the mood in ashburn today and were there any player personnel moves? >> the mood was good and the answer yes, santana moss the first of the free agents to stay in-house agreeing to a three year $15 million deal including a $5 million signing bonus according to espn. also several reports the vikings and redskins are very close to finalizing a deal to send the quarterback to
10:11 pm
minnesota. the delay is the reworking of mcnabb's contract. while mcnabb is almost surely gone, albert haynesworth might be around this season. mike shanahan says they aren't going to give him away, the co haynesworth is still under contract with the skins already paid almost 35 million for 20 games of work, scheduled to earn 5.4 this season. he was suspended the final four games last season for conduct detrimental to the club and here's his teammate brian orakpo. >> it wears you don't. albert don't want to talk about it. we don't want to talk about it. we just want to focus on us as a team, man. last year and the years previous we talked too much about individuals that had problems with the organization and stuff instead of trying to perform well. it just harms on you at times. >> albert -- harps on you at
10:12 pm
times. >> albert haynesworth could still be around, even though brian orakpo said it could be a distraction. the free agents across this land especially with the redskins and the one way to dissect it would be to discuss it with an nfl gm. >> or a former gm. there are names being let go from teams and we asked the former general manager of the washington redskins what it's like to be in all those front offices right now. >> it would be hectic but you'll divide it into sections. the college free agent period is a two hour process at the most. that's over and done. with the draft choiced shouldn't be complicated because normally they sign at the last minute anyway. now you're at the last minute. i think it will get figured out quickly on what the new system can do. that shouldn't be long. on the free agent part of it if you're trying to get some big money guys, that's going to take a couple days there. i'll say one thing about your plan. you always have a plan. after about the first 24 hours you are on to another plan, but
10:13 pm
teams are organized enough they can handle this. >> reporter: charley casserly is a former redskins general manager, spent 23 years with the team winning three super bowls in the process, says the new $120 million per team salary cap is problematic. >> here's what happened. two years ago the cap was over 120 million. then you had an uncapped year. when you are signing contracts three and four years ago, you naturally escalated future years because you anticipated the cap going up. now the cap has been basically flat or a little below that, so you'll have teams that will have contracts that weren't built for this cap, thus you'll have players release. >> reporter: what does he think coach shanahan and redskins top management are going through now? >> they need to build for the future. they started out with the draft by multiplying draft choices and getting a lot of numbers and players, a young infusion of talent. now i think they need to
10:14 pm
concentrate on the younger free agents. that's what you invest your money into. they have a lot of needs. they're not going to so of them all in one year, but they've taken -- solve them all in one year, but they've taken one good step in the draft. you be methodical in building process. >> reporter: he says the front offices and gms were working back in january and february what they were doing for free agency and he says the new rookie salary cap is a good thing. it's going to free up some money for some of the veteran players. >> did he say who got the better end of the deal, the players or the owners? >> he said both did. he thinks them got what them wanted, also didn't -- them got what they wanted, also didn't get what they wanted and it was a fair deal for both. >> at 10:00 we'll talk with the guy who says he's the starting quarterback for the redskins this year. his family is john beck and beck hasn't played in four or five seasons, has as much experience as you or me, better
10:15 pm
athlete. brian, back to you. >> i'm glad near the one of you guys are going to be the quarterback -- neither one of you guys are going to be the quarterback. another congressman indicate up in a sex scandal resigning -- caught up in a sex scandal resigning, but he's not step ago side just yet. >> another hot -- accepting aside just yet. >> another hot -- stepping aside just yet. >> another hot day in d.c. i'll let you know how we look heading deeper into this week and weekend. fox 5 news at 10:00 will be right back.

showers. they've been weakening now trying to come through the shenandoah valley. the front has produced a few more showers up through western pennsylvania, maybe an isolated shower well to the west. the front will help us out, especially when it comes to the comfort index for tomorrow. our dew point tonight is 64. we consider that not too bad. tomorrow we'll be in that range, but i think it will be closer to 60 or maybe the upper 50s which should really feel phenomenal, nice bright blue sky, a little bit of refreshing breeze. unfortunately temperatures have been very slow to fall off. they will start to go, but 86 at 10:00, still very noticeable, 81 for frederick, 79 gaithersburg, 77 culpeper and we will have clear skies overnight and with temperatures dropping to the upper 60s it should be a real refreshing start in the morning for chantilly and winchester 66 degrees. here is your temperature trend. tomorrow should be cooler than today, 90, 91 degrees, close to
10:53 pm
average of 89, but thursday nine 5. friday we're up to 99 degrees again -- 95. friday we're up to 99 degrees again and the humidity climbing. high pressure will be over us tomorrow. the front will get down to our south. it will be real comfortable, but there's one more special day. then the high will flip off the coast and bring the return flow around it, start says bringing the heat back into the picture. that's where we'll be thursday and friday, hot and humid with temperatures climbing well into the 90s and we keep that going through the weekend, might even be throwing a thunderstorm into the mix at that point. here's your five-day forecast. we're going for, as you saw, there's three days that really start to warm up, especially friday at 99, which is the record. saturday 97 and sunday 93 degrees. i think starting friday but especially saturday, sunday we may have a couple thunderstorms around, too. i think people root for those when it gets that hot because it breaks the heat a little.
